I have never stayed in a B&B before and was rather apprehensive when I booked. I should never have worried. I was in Ireland for a wedding, my friends had all managed to get rooms in hotels near the venue and were paying £100 a night. What would I get for 35 euros? Well, I got a good nights sleep,...

I stayed here as a birthday treat for myself last August, taking the ferry from Rathmullan to Buncranna on route. If the owners make a place, then rest assured, this couple are genuinely nice and welcoming. The house and grounds are like a 4star lodge, best of all, on the waterfront, and within walking distance to a beautiful wee beach.... More

We (2 adults and a baby) spent one night here in May 2012, and they accommodated us graciously at very short notice. They are welcoming and interesting people, with values we appreciate (they grow or source their food locally, are committed to their community, etc.). The building is a fine example of a 17th/18th century manor house - spacious and... More

Linsfort Castle B&B is a perfect ‘Gem’ to visit, nestled in a lovely spot of the ‘Inishowen Scenic 100’route, north of Buncrana. As soon as you arrive you’re greeted by wonderful hospitality. The couple serve, up a superb breakfast, oozing in flavour, as they produce much of their own food stuff, i.e. honey, jams, free range eggs and vegetables etc.... More
